Native Public Media is dedicated to building and advancing Native access to, ownership of, and participation in media. Native media is used as a tool to advance economic development, preserve language and culture, promote health and education, and facilitate Native American engagement in issues that affect Native nations and communities. Native radio is supported through the New Horizons project, which is an effort to measure radio's impact on building healthier communities and develop best practices for community service. A directory of Native public radio stations organized by state is available on Native Public Media's web site. These radio stations provide a lifeline to their communities bringing a contemporary voice, often in Native languages, that evokes the oral traditions of a cultural heritage centuries in the making.
